It's very cold right now... And soon, the summer and hot days will end...
I'm not unhappy to see the winter come again, but I'm very sad to realize that the last storm of the year is already behind me... No more lightning photography this year ! :(
Or..... Maybe ?
If nature can't give me storms any more this year, I will try to make my own !!! :D
Yeah, a new project has emerged of my mind : building a Tesla coil ! :P
I've passed the last few weeks searching documentation about that, to find the right components to use, advice from other Tesla coil builders, learning a lot of things about electronics and Tesla coil physics... And tonight,
I'm currently working on a device for my tripod to protect the camera from the rain.
With that, I will try to place my tripod/camera at the edge of the forest, on the hill next to my home during a storm. I really want to take lightning photos without being too close of houses and city lights... ^^
